I am running an 81 Buick regale with 350 transmission in first gear and 2.73 . I Race on a mile gravel semi banked tack. I love the gears I have , for you see this year I have Placed First in every race but one . My Question is what gear will I need if I put in a power glide in my car ? For you see I wont to run the power glide in high gear with out a converter

you're total gear now is a 657 so you will probably need to go to a 9 inch for that gear or you can run the glide in second (1.76 ratio)and run a 373 rear should be close

with that 350 turbo your at 687.96. with a 176 & 373 you will be 656.48. with a 182 & 373 you will be at 678.86.you can get it with a 10 bolt 7.5 or 8.5. much cheaper.if your motor can take it put in 410 & 176 its 721.60 and it will fly.o i bet that gravel has got to hurt.
